Daniele Rugani is not a regular starter at Juventus; he typically gets playing time when the defenders ahead of him in the pecking order are unavailable.
This was the situation when he was included in the team to face AC Milan, a match that Juventus won. The Bianconeri have experienced inconsistency this season but have remained one of the top clubs in the league.
Rugani is eager to play a more significant role, and a new statistic regarding his appearances for the team might earn him more minutes on the pitch. According to a report from Calciomercato, in the last two seasons, Rugani has started eight games for Juventus, resulting in the team earning 19 points out of a possible 24. Furthermore, in those fixtures, Juventus has only conceded one goal, highlighting how underrated Rugani may be.
Juve FC Says
While the statistic highlights Rugani’s positive impact when he plays for Juventus, it’s worth noting that he might not be considered strong enough to lead the team’s defence, which is why he often finds himself on the bench.
Despite the stat showcasing his value, it’s true that there are likely other defenders in the squad who are considered superior options by both the coaching staff and the club’s supporters. Rugani may not be among the club’s best defenders, but he has shown his worth when called upon.
